Grutness beach, Shetland. Original mixed media painting, acrylic on plywood, finished with grass, sand and curled bark which washed up on the beach. Sarah Kay – The Shetland artist.



Grutness beach, Shetland Islands (The Sumburgh hotel is in the distance)

I have used acrylic paint onto thin plywood to create this piece. I collected sand from the beach and glued on, with some grass and a curly piece of bark.

These pieces of bark which regularly wash up  has a knick name on Shetland called a ‘willie white’ and is useful to light a fire with outside. I believe it is a silver birch bark from Norway (we have no trees in Shetland!)

This piece of artwork is 100% original and comes framed in a black box frame measuring 50 x 50 x 4.5 cms. It is ready to hang.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
